"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Wasabi Tei

We chanced upon this small restaurant in Far East Plaza. However one of my friends heard about this place and recommended we go in to try. He was saying his friend commented that the male server was very rude and you can’t choose your seat in the small 16-seater restaurant. But we decided to go in anyway. We were lucky to get a seat immediately. My friend was saying there is usually a very long queue.

The place was small and squeezy. The seats were bar-height and seats were small.

From the counter, you can also look into the kitchen.

We shared had salmon sashimi. JH and I had the cod fish claypot and CP had the sashimi rice set. We were taken aback by the lady serving us because she was actually quite nice. The man was also introducing us on what to eat. Hmm, probably their temper only comes when they are crowded. We took quite a long time to finally decided what to eat.

We were served with our drinks and this tasty dish – Hijiki seaweed. It tasted to have been braised. Indeed, it was a good appetiser. It was quite a big portion and none of us could finish it.

Then came our mains. Our salmon sashimi pieces were THICK, one of the thickest I’ve seen. It was fresh and tasted good. I think my photograph here does not do justice to how thick and big the sashimi was.

The codfish claypot was huge and generous on the cabbage. We could have just ordered one to share. It was an unexpectedly big claypot of soup.

CP’s sashimi rice set was also generous with the thickness of the sashimi and he totally enjoyed every piece of fish. “Shiok” was what he used to describe.
